Not that DC is lacking for outlets. The CW is already home to the hit show Arrow and will soon host the pilot for a new series starring the Flash. Trouble is, there's only so much room for comics-themed content on one network. Spreading the wealth to other outlets only makes sense, Tim argues.
Fox and DC parent Time Warner (NYSE: TWX ) are already natural partners, with the former having recently optioned a DC adaptation titled Gotham. The network's current portfolio of well-crafted "niche" programming includes the horror adaptation Sleepy Hollow and the futuristic cop drama Almost Human. Adding one or two more DC shows would hardly be out of character.
Now it's your turn to weigh in. Should Warner wait to bring more DC Comics characters straight to film or explore a broader portfolio of TV dramas? Please watch the video to get Tim's full take and then leave a comment to let us know where you stand.
